Paper Abstract

A miniature 1280 by 1024 transmissive active matrix liquid crystal display (AMLCD) was developed for the helmet-mounted display in the RAH-66 Comanche helicopter. To meet the stringent environmental and optical performance requirements, improvements were made in the AMLCD's operating temperature range, viewing angle, pixel size, and transmission. These features were combined with technology previously developed to provide uniform gray scale, rapid optical response times, and ultra high-brightness imagery for the combination of high-resolution FLIR imagery and flight symbology viewable in daytime environments.
